Nation's Largest Labor Federations Announce Support for Immigration Reform

The nation’s two largest organized labor federations, AFL-CIO and Change To Win (UFCW, SEIU, UNITE HERE, UFW, LIUNA, Teamsters and Carpenters unions), have come out together in support of passing Comprehensive Immigration Reform.

This announcement follows last week's statement from the White House that the President would push for passage of immigration reform this year.

The AFL-CIO’s and Change to Win's accord endorses legalizing undocumented immigrants that already work and live in the United States.

John Sweeney, President of the AFL-CIO told the New York Times that, "The labor movement will work together to make sure that the White House as well as Congress understand that we speak about immigration reform with one voice."
